Political culture

I caught a few glimpses of the DNC and will have to watch the RNC now. After taking a compulsory class in US Constitution I've wanted to become more politically involved. Not just aware of issues and people, but actually put effort in understanding how that mess-o-machine works. Seems like it's too important to let slip by. Look what happened when not enough people cared in 2000, and then similar shit in 2004. There's a lot going on in the world, and we're in the world. If you're not paying enough attention and trying to understand things for yourself, then the world's not going to just "pass you on by", but it'll most likely just find a new way to fuck with you.
